The NOT GUILTY verdict in the murder of Trayvon Martin, by George Zimmerman was expected by some but a shock to many.  Folks of all hues and paths responded immediately with protest throughout the nation.  It was a sight to see the mostly peaceful demonstration of unity.  But just as Occupy Wall Street spread like wild fire around the world then eventually smouldered into the ether we know that protests alone will not bring justice.  

I will take a look at who I believe George Zimmerman to be... A man caught between two worlds but whose appearance would not garner him easy acceptance into the more entitled world that he is a part of.  Could this be at the root of his profiling obsession?  His OWN self-hatred of looking non white? Also, how this ties in to NYPD's "Stop and Frisk".  Is it really that different.

You must call in, no matter if you agree or disagree with the verdict, and share your view.
